Title: PS4 CHANGE NAT TYPE 3
Post by: nobody on January 12, 2017, 05:27:52 pm
How can change my LANKA BELL WIFI to NAT Type 1 or 2?
I have NAT Type 3 and im told that this is bad for online gaming.

I messaged LANKA BELL but they still havent gotten back to me. Can you guys help me?
The router I use is the one which Lanka bell gave me.

NAT TYPE is based on your router and how many ports you have opened, not lanka bell. Basically get into the router settings and open the ports required for the PSN network or the game required.

Although it's not that big of a deal, We Sri Lankans without connection anyways cannot host games so it's not a big deal only issue you'd get if you party with people and play then you might have connection issues.

Most games have UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) I believe that's enabled on your router so you won't have connection issues to players with NAT Type 1 or 2  :)

I dont know how much of an improvement it will be. but did the below and failed to change nat 3.

set up correct port forwarding after assigning the IP.
even entered the assigned ip in the DMZ
disabled firewall on router.

i think the ISP has something to do with this as its even on the DMZ

For some reason i have the same problem as well. Was having a fine time on Type 2 until recently it switched to NAT 3. Been getting a lot of connectivity issues in games like CoD but Destiny seems to run fine for me
